Authorities in Ghana have appealed against a court ruling granting bail to six suspects, including four Britons, arrested with $140m worth of cocaine.
The cocaine haul was found at the home of a suspect
Tribunal judge Justice Peter Aggrey allowed bail at $32,000 for the suspects without giving any reasons.
Ghana's Attorney-General, Papa Owusu-Ankomah, said the decision does not demonstrate that drug smuggling is a serious offence.
The cocaine weighing nearly a tonne was seized at one of the suspect's home.
The BBC's Kwaku Sakyi-Addo in Accra says the suspects include a Ghanaian, a German, and four Britons, one of whom, according to prosecutors, has multiple passports.
Ghana's Interior minister Hackman Owusu-Agyeman said the tribunal's decision could affect the morale of the narcotics officers, who arrested the suspects after two years of investigations.
The suspects, who are still in custody, were arrested following a tip-off from British customs officials.
